Farewell gathering for Derryl Block

Prof. Derryl Block is heading off to Northern Illinois University, but not before she’s the guest of honor this Thursday (June 28) at a farewell sendoff organized by friends and colleagues from 11 a.m. to noon in the Rose Hall “kitchen,” Room 325B. Block will be the new dean of NIU’s College of Health and Human Sciences. At UW-Green Bay she has served as chair of the Professional Program in Nursing, director of the online BSN-LINC program and interim dean of professional and graduate studies. She joined UWGB in 2001 as an associate professor.
